Important Safety Instructions

Caution-Icon.png When using this appliance always exercise basic safety precautions including the following:
  • This clothes washer is not intended for use by persons (including children aged below 8 years) with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they are supervised or given instructions on how to use the washer by someone responsible for their safety and they understand the hazards involved.
  • The washer should only be used for washing and rinsing of textiles where this is indicated on the care label.
  • The door will be locked from the start of the cycle until the cycle is complete for safety reasons. It is possible to open the door during the cycle under certain conditions (refer to 'Safety Features').
  • Never force the door open.
  • Keep children away from the washer while it is in operation.
  • Children of less than 3 years should be kept away unless continuously supervised.
  • Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children without supervision.
  • Supervise children to ensure they do not play with the washer or climb inside the drum.
  • Do not touch the glass part of the door during a cycle as the door can become hot.
  • Do not open the detergent dispenser during the cycle as hot water may come out of it.
  • The only user-removable parts of the washer are the inlet hoses, detergent dispenser and the pump filter. No other parts are designed to be removed by anyone other than a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician.
  • When disposing of the washer, it is recommended that the door is removed to avoid children getting trapped inside, and that the electrical cable is cut off close to the washer.
